Video footage from the 1990s shows Catherine McKenna bribing her way into a cockfight and chowing down on dog meat in Indonesia. Is criticizing this fair game or does it simply fuel cancel culture? True North’s Andrew Lawton discusses.

Also, another climate apocalypse deadline has come and gone and we’re still here, plus a look at the New York Times’ nothingburger story on Donald Trump’s tax returns. Ontario member of provincial parliament Randy Hiller joins the show to talk about the courage deficit among Canadian politicians as another lockdown looms.

A Canadian broadcaster and columnist, Andrew serves as a journalism fellow at True North and host of The Andrew Lawton Show.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
